MOSUL — The recent significant damages the Kurdish Peshmerga forces have inflicted to the Islamic State (IS) near Mosul, will affect the group's military strategy in northern Iraq, says a Kurdish official. Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) official in Sinjar, Wahid Bakozi, told BasNews that after the Peshmerga forces liberated a vast area in the east of Mosul earlier this week, IS is now paralyzed with the fear of an imminent operation on its stronghold of Mosul. He stated that they have intelligence indicating that IS, after their recent failure at the hands of Peshmerga, have now moved its heavy arms out of Mosul, mostly in the areas near the Iraqi-Syrian borders. Bakozi revealed that they have obtained a copy of IS Leader Abubakir al-Baghdadi’s letter to the group’s commanders, ordering them to eventually withdraw to the major cities as “the people of Iraq and Syria do not deserve the sacrifices IS is making.” The Kurdish official pointed out that, according to Baghdadi’s letter, the jihadists are required to focus on Misrata city of Libya instead of continuing in the current situation of Iraq and Syria. The Peshmerga forces on Sunday launched a massive operation against IS, and liberated several villages on the Khazir frontline. Kurdistan Region Security Council (KRSC) said in a statement that the operation aims to put under pressure the jihadists in and around Mosul.
